    Preheaters sit inside of a hood and there are drip channels under the preheater and/or a channel along the edge of the hood to catch all the condensation and channel it to the outside of the hood. ...

    I'd say if you have the ability to process the sap every day or two then you could get by with something that could process around 100 GPH, like one of the small hobby RO's. I'm not a DIY RO guy,...

    Everyone’s trees are different so how many gallons is a typical run? How much sap are you looking at processing each time? My guess is you’re looking at a 250 GPH RO.

    I imagine they would work fine as long as they have the sanoprene diaphragms. I just PM'd you the email address for the rep. I spoke to. He was very quick to repsond.

    For those interested, I asked the question to a Remco rep. and here was the response:

    "Hello, I can help you out. Yes CDL uses these pumps and yes the temp. is higher than what we put in our...

    Clear PVC piping is nice because you can see the sap. We use 1" clear PVC line. 1.5" outlet on our tank so we come through the wall with 1.5" stainless then have a coupling to go to 1". We have a...

    Do yourself a favor and make the drops ahead of time and before you go in the woods- New tee, drop and spout. You can do it in the heat of your home or shack. This past Sunday we made 150 drops in...

    It depends on what you need, where the tank is and of course- what you want to spend. We use the IBC totes in the woods because we don't have any shelter and they keep the weather out. We may try...

    We mix syrup through the season if it grades the same off the evaporator. Once we have 8-12 gallons we will heat it up and run it through press. You can certainly play with how many plates you want...

    Thanks for the report Dave. I was one of the guys having some issues with the mainline setup. I don't think we saw over 15" on our 500' of mainline in 1 bush. Its about 145 taps so plenty of sap. ...

    One thing is for sure.........you will be glad you bought the press.. Life is so much better with a press!!

    Well honestly, it's kind of nice to have both. For bottling, you would definitely want a table height bottling set up and not the turkey burner. Those are easier to control temperature, the turkey...

    We put our syrup off the evaporator into a turkey fryer stainless pot and burner. We'll adjust for density here, get the temp up and push it through the press and into out bottler which is a 15G pan...

    We did not have a vacuum gauge there last year. We could do as you suggest, would lose a couple taps doing so. Moving the collection tote would also make it a little harder to access. We pump from...

    I believe what Dr. Tim described is what we witnessed on our 1 run of 3/16" we tried last year. We have 31 taps on a moderate slope.....40' of drop over 500' of line which is an 8% slope that is a...

    Conversely, when we upgraded our evaporator it made drinking beer easier. Went from wood to oil so boiling is kind of boring (not complaining- that's what it is when things are going good). So,...

    I'd try it with 3/16" laterals and 5/16"drops. Make a manifold for each 3/16" line to hook up to the Shurflo. That will help isolate lines if you want to check leaks or narrow down any issues. ...

    It's kind of neat to track as much information as you can. Looking back on the records 10 years down the road is kind of neat. You'll probably find that the one thing that remains constant when...

    I really like the CDL auto twister we have that darkmachine is probably referring to. I'm sure they all make one. I would think with a drill you would spend more time trying to go slow as to not...

    4008 and 4048 are the most common pumps used. We run a 4048. For parts, it depends on what you are hooking them up to. Are you putting it into mainline or individual laterals of 3/16” or 5/16”? ...
